Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, has today announced that it has provided Wessex Care Limited with over £9.27 million in funding that has been used in part to support the development of its new state-of-the-art care centres, including Kimberly West and East Care Centres in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Matthew Airey, Managing Director at Wessex Care said: “After seven years from concept to completion, we are pleased to have launched Kimberly West Care Centre and are currently working on the construction of Kimberly East Care Centre. None of this would have been possible without the support, funding and amazing service provided by Metro Bank. We have exciting plans to transform our current residential, nursing and dementia care homes and are look forward to working with Metro Bank on these projects.”

Denis Knockton, Head of Mid-Market Healthcare at Metro Bank commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been able to support Wessex Care with this finance solution. They’re a well-known and respected organisation that provides vital and accessible services to the local community. I look forward to working closely with them and supporting them with their future aspirations.”

Established in 2001, Wessex Care is a family-owned operator of five care homes, with a total of 117 beds. The development programme will increase this to six care centres with 250 beds.
